coincidence. joining us is president of florida league of women voters and jim greer, the former chairman of the republican party who's been very critical of what went on behind the scenes. first, thank you both for being here. >> glad to be here. >> jim, what can you tell our viewers with emmett "bucky" greer? >> he and his partner worked for me for a period of time when i was chairman. they are good at what they do. when you're looking for a lawyer that can write legislation and change the election laws, stand up potentially to a constitutional challenge, you reach out to people like bucky and his partner richard coats and they draft the law. they a they advise how it can get done and it's about keeping people from election day to win the republican election. >> keeping pop freople from get to election day? >> that's right. primarily down here in florida, reducing early voting days, put all of these obstacles in the way of democrats, minority voters from getting to the polls because down here in florida it's not just about the presidential election, it's about keeping power in the legis
. >> jim, your favorite "star wars" film, please. >> it's definitely "empire strikes back." i'm chind ofkind of a chewie gu. >> who isn't? >> new jersey governor chris christie, new york city mayor michael bloomberg have come out as sort of the faces of this storm. is there a political impact here? it's been interesting, jim, to watch the relationship between chris christie and president obama and the relationship between mayer bloomberg and president obama. explain that a little bit. >> i find that christie to be most fascinating because he's going out there on all the talk shows really praising barack obama and how cooperative he's been with governor christie in new jersey. if you look at it from christ christie's perspective, that's what he should be doing. he's a governor who's going to need as much assistance and help in the aftermath of the storm as anyone. befriending the president, praising the president, bringing the president into his state and traveling the state, that's what you do when you're a governor. >> by the way, jim -- by the way, jim, not being cynical, i think yo
evacuated. jim axelrod has more from lower manhattan. >> reporter: good morning. new yorkers pride themselves on being intrepid. and right now we still have some people walking along the wall here in lower manhattan. in a couple of hours if they're here, we'll have to look for another adjective other than intrepid. the big worry here is that the surge of water could be as high as 11, 12 feet. that would get over the wall, into the subway systems and electrical systems, and that's what the big catastrophic worry is here in lower manhattan. the transit system shut down schools shut down. 375,000 people from the lowest lying areas in new york have been evacuated as the biggest city braces for the impacts of hurricane sandy. charlie? >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> meteorologist from cbs 4 has been watching sandy closely. jeff, this is getting scary based on reports you're pulling in. it sounds like this is getting worse. >> good morning, nor amp good morning, everyone. yeah. this storm is getting a little bit worse in the atlantic now. you see that the core of th
sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
[unintelligible] and action news reporter vernon odem. moderating the debate, jim gardner. >> hello, this is the only broadcast debate in the 2012 senate race between bob casey and tom smith. here are the rules to which they have agreed for today's meeting. the format will include questions candidates from me and our panelists. a coin toss determines the podium position and order of questioning. candidates will have 90 seconds for closing statements. the candidates are here to speak about the issues that voters care about in this important campaign. gentleman, to prepare for this debate, i asked an acquaintance what he has gotten out of the campaign. after a moment or two of hesitation, he said -- well, there is this senator's zeroth thing, then there is this tea party prom thing going on. i asked him -- what else have you gotten out of the campaign? he stared at me and said that he could not really say. i would ask you two gentlemen if you think the campaign has reached the voters and if you are proud the -- proud of the way this campaign has gone. >> first of all, i want to thank
's also back in full campaign mode. he's not pulling any punches. his new line of attack, jim acosta will have that next. dad vo: ok, time for bed, kiddo. lights out. ♪ (sirens) (train horn) ♪ vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> mitt romney is himself back in full campaign mode today in virginia. here's cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta. >> reporter: wolf, the truce is over. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, mitt romney has shifted back into campaign mode. and the gop candidate has unleashed some new eye opening lines of attack. mitt romney turned battleground virginia into a battlefield ending a two-daybreak from the campaign's fireworks with some new verbal cannon shots aimed at winning the last five days of the race. >> i know that the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chant is this. five more days. five more days is our chant. >> reporter: romney then mocked president obama for saying he m
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
. dan came in here in 2006 after being gone for many, many years to challenge jim walsh. >> moderator: okay, do you want to come in now? >> what's the question? >> moderator: you have not been the subject of the attack ads, but you have a positive message you want out. you have a 60 seconds on an issue of your choosing. >> thank you. i'm a central new york stative born and raised in syracuse, my parents from poland in the 1980s, they came here basically believing that this is the kind of country where you work hard, you can create a good life for your family, and that's not the case anymore. the american dream is far out of reach of too many people so what i support is the green new deal, public investment to put people back to work meeting today's challenges. that means addressing unmet community needs whether it's updating our hundred-year-old sewers in syracuse, developing energy for real energy independence. it support these policies to put, you know, the communities and put money in working people's pockets. i think we need new leadership. i said it before. my opponents represent
. they shall walk and not >> i'm congressman jim mcgovern from massachusetts. when eleanor roosevelt died it was said that i've lost more than a friend, i've lost an inspiration and that's the way i feel today. deep down i know george mcgovern is in a better place. he's with eleanor and terri and steve. who knows, he may even be president. but for so many of us it is difficult to say goodbye. it was always comforting to know that he was around reminding us we can do better, making it seem possible we could end all wars, eliminate hunger and poverty and create a world where all god's children are respected valued and loved. in 1972 as a seventh grader in massachusetts i did what i could to elect him president of the united states which i remind you all he did win massachusetts. [applause] [applause] i was later an intern in his senate office and i had the privilege to work with the incredible staff he assembled in washington d.c. and south dakota, some of the finest people i have ever known. we weren't related it was just a co-incidence we both had the same last name. but people would tell
is trying to keep voters focused on the economy telling them he could do better than president obama. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> we've been traveling by bus over the last few days, ohio and iowa, one thing we've heard, he's been debuting this new theme, he is the agent, he is the candidate of big change and the president is just more of what he calls the status quo. one thing we can also report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hi
lead the entire year and looks to be in good shape to be the first republican governor since jim martin was elected in 1980. so it is shaping up as a very good republican year in the state. host: you've also got quite a contest going on in north carolina's 11th district. tell us about that. guest: we had -- let me jump back a little bit. in 2010 we had the first republican legislature since 1800's. and it came just as redistricting happened. it meant that you had new lines drawn for congressional districts. and so the -- with these new lines right now we have an 8/7 breakdown, 8 democrats, 7 republicans, i think that's right. no it's 7/6. but the republicans think they can pick up four seats because of the new district lines. if so that would be the biggest pick up of any state in the country. it seems there are certain to pick up two seats based on unfavorable new districts. democratic congressmen decided not to seek reelection brad miller in the 13th and in the 11th. and larry kissell in the 8th district in charlotte area and that goes down to the south carolina border is in a really
. michele bachmann is locked in a tight race against democratic challenger jim graves. the right wing's war on women came up in the last debate. bachmann was asked about richard mourdock's remarks. bachmann wouldn't tell voters where she stood, dodging questions about abortion, access for rape victims. >> you heard what richard mourdock said and you know that has been controversial. god intended this to happen if a fetus results a consequence of that rape. i want to know if you agree with that. >> what i agree with is i'm 100% pro-life and i agree with the position of the catholic church on this issue. >> let's bring in kelly goth, political correspondent for theroot.com and democratic strategist chris kafinis. the war on women. these remarks by mourdock continued to erode away. how big of an impact is this going to have on these races? >> huge. it already is, right? and i think the way i look at this, ed, is the other perspective of the gop was that this election cycle was essentially about three issues. the economy, the economy, the economy. and that is partially true, right? but you can
to be affected. >> jim accosta is in cleveland, ohio, with the romney campaign, so, jim, we know that both of these men have canceled their events and from the romney folks' perspective, from their campaign, what was the thinking behind it? >> well, suzanne, i think when the president started containsing his events, it probably started to dawn on the romney campaign that it would be difficult to get out there and do a whole lot of campaigning in a time of national crisis. >> as you mentioned, the romney campaign did announce earlier today it is cancelling events for this evening and tomorrow. it is going to go ahead and carry through with an event set for davenport, iowa, later on this afternoon, and then that's it. suzanne, basically this campaign is in a holding pattern. it is in limbo until all of this passes. just so everybody knows, the governor is not going to be down for the next day and a half. they say don't describe it like that. the other thing we don't know where he will physically be. we assume at this point, suzanne, that they are work out those logistics. earlier today at an
the republican team, so we got to be sure did jim it is also recollected. he is doing a great job in washington. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obam
find it. let's deal with the system the way it is. and that's why jim and i have a difference of opinion on this idea. >> you know, j.d., i think the republican response, the conservative response to the affordable care act is symptomatic of something broader. to me it has badly damaged the credibility of the conservative movement over the past few years. that is if the obama presidency, i would say it's moderate. it's been incremental. you look at the health care plan, as you say, which has bee insurance, the rescue of wall street, saved wall street as we know it. the stimulus, national security policies that were held over from bush. i could go on and on. the point is this, republicans confronted with an administration that showed time and again they did want to work with them and incorporate some conservative ideas. republicans instead responded by simply saying this is socialism, massive government, a threat to freedom. has the conservative movement destroyed its credibility by responding so hysterically to what has really been a moderate president? >> well, you know, i th
with it but they did. >> the question -- >> karl rove. and jim i guess. >> with the national association of independent colleges and universities. [inaudible] i want to be mindful that it's national policy -- a lot of students have access to look through a window. many of them went to school and private colleges and universities. do the best josh of getting the students through. those who graduate for four years is for sale. so -- what's the bester investment? >> if i had had my drutsdzers i would be spending 10% on higher education. in my group i think history tells us that's the level in which the best performing economying in the world typically -- >> where are we now? >> we're now about 8. we used to bt 10. we're now about . korea the single most successful economy of the last 50 years is at ten and has been at ten since it was an incredibly poor country. and so to me that's what i would do. and so all i'm saying is we have -- i would start with the public system. i think that's what government should do. and but in my view, i would also provide assistance to very income dependent assistance to pri
until election day. republican congresswoman michelle bachmann and jim graves finally facing off in their first debate and the candidates did not waste time getting in each other's faces. >> jim gray's ad about 50% to your tax bill, that's about what you'd be looking at. >> again, michelle doesn't say what she's for. she says what she's against. >> steve: congresswoman bachman is seeking her fourth term in the house of representatives. >> gretchen: everyone knows his name. ♪ -- lollipop. >> how does the song end? >> i don't know. it keeps going 'til one of us drops. ♪ . >> gretchen: sad news this morning, george went has been hospitalized after having chest pains. norm was supposed to play oscar madison in a chicago production of "the odd couple," but dropped out, but is expected to make a full recovery. >> eric: can you imagine the border patrol agent's reaction when they came across this? two would be smugglers attempt to go get into arizona in a road block, their jeep propped up on a makeshift ramp on this fence. it didn't get far u about the suspects did. they quickly esc
of new hampshire with jim merrill.'first, a news update from c-span radio. if i could just begin with some of this distance about new hampshire or electoral votes. president obama won by 9%. abc news said that he did not just eek out a win, he dominated. he bested mccain by 54%-44%. given the economy is not as weak as in other states and the margin by which he won, how was the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: let me make it clear, mitt romney will win next week. we have seen unemployment rise through the country as well as elsewhere, skyrocketing federal spending, government programs out of control. i think that is why you see today, especially between president obama. i think the voters of this state, what you are correct, unemployment has not been as tough. but there is anxiety. that is why they're looking at mitt romney closely. he has a plan, he has a record of success, this president does not. host: the undeclared make up 40%. how was he trying to appeal to them and what is internal polling showing how many of those voters he could get on election da
-american vote and they're going to reward brown for that >> let's go back to our ohio line. jim is an independent. you're on with congressman tim ryan. >> good morning, congressman ryan. i was raised in akron, left goodyear to teach in 1976. now i live in stark county and i drive a jeep and i'm a supporter of senator brown and our president. and i met you at an sb-5 rally back last year. i was very sorry, of course john boccieri, who i think you know pretty well, is no longer serving us but i hope he'll be back. in line with that, the redistricting issue too in ohio. i wish yud speak a little bit to the pathology of how these districts are being gerrymandered and -- specifically in -- an issue two in ohio. >> we're supporting issue two, i'm supporting issue two which creates a citizen panel to redraw the congressional districts and the legislative districts. >> is that on the ballot as well? >> it's on the ballot as well. it takes the pen out of the hands of politicians, both democrats and republicans, so we can start getting districts that are inclusive of entire communities an
. and the ball park is kind of big, similar to at&t park f you're jim leland, how do you pitch pablo sandoval the next couple games? >> reporter: he's the best bad ball hitter in the world! >> that's true. >> reporter: he hit three homeruns and none of them were strikes. maybe it's right down the middle. i don't know. pablo, you know, it's incredible to think about it. he's got six homeruns total in the post season. he had just 12 all year! so he's, he's just one of those guys that you can't describe, you can't define, because he will hit anything that you throw at him and he manages to get the meat of the bat on it. so he, he's a weapon right now and he's never been hotter than he is right now. >> and another weapon i think right now also that people have been talking about is the giants' defense. i mean, just executing. you mentioned it earlier on mornings on 2. blanco had those big catches in game 1. game 2, at the plate to get prince fielder. giants keep playing defense like they are, you can't beat them, seems like, fred! >> reporter: well, they are not beating themselves. that's the thi
